Posted:It depends on the weight of the chain and the LED module. The module should be much heavier than the line it hangs from.

That's why cord is often a better choice than chain. That's also one of the reasons that glow 'sock' poi have always been popular.

Chain is also not as flexible as cord / fabric.

TBH I'd only use chain if:
- The LED module is extremely heavy.
- You want your LED poi to react more like your fire poi.
- You want to have interchangeable fire / LED heads on your poi.

Hope that helps smile

Posted:Thanks for your help guys.
I've decided to get a cord instead of a chain.
I do want interchangeable fire/ LED heads on my poi but I'm not going to start spinning fire for a while. I'll just buy another poi when the times comes.
Thanks again! smile
